We have an SSIS package in our SQL Server 2008 server to load data onto our system every night. The SSIS package consists of several ETLs (around 20) that are currently run sequentially.

On some nights it spits out below deadlock messages for certain ETLs. Some nights pass with no errors at all. Every night what's run on the server is the same.

The specific ETLs deadlocking are not the same. For instance,

  • Monday it'll be ETL1, ETL3, ETL9.
  • Tuesday & Wednesday – all OK.
  • Thursday – ETL2, ETL5, ETL6, ETL7.
  • Friday – all OK.

Below is the 19th night's error message in SQL Server Agent:

  • What are all the settings on the OLEDB destination that throws the error? (Table lock? Bulk load? etc)What other processes could be writing into the table and what would happen if they were locked out for the duration of this package execution? – GregGalloway Nov 24 '16 at 14:31
